To give counter attack to Congress MP Pradyut Bordoloi who alleged that Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal is running and controlling the coal syndicate, BJP MLA Bimal Bora said that the allegation is completely false.
In a press conference at Tingkhong, Bora said that the chief minister is not connected with Coal-Checkgate syndicate.
Bora also challenged Pradyut Bordoloi to prove with valid documents. He further alleged that it was during the regime of Congress Government that coal syndicate prevailed in the state. It was the BJP who closed around 150 check gates after it came into power.
Bora also alleged that the forest area in Margherita has been completely destroyed under direct cooperation of Pradyut Bordoloi.
